Our home is on a hill with views across to the coast. You can sit on the deck with binoculars and 'whale watch'.We often see native animals, such as kangaroos and echidnas in our backyard.
Our home is quite large, with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and plenty of living space.There is a large deck, with a spa and sauna.
We live about 10 kms out of a seaside town called Ballina.
We are on the beautiful north coast of NSW, not far from Byron Bay, the Gold Coast and about 2 hours drive into Brisbane.
Our neighbourhood is very quiet, with friendly neighbours nearby.
There are lots of things to see and do on the North Coast - swimming, local craft markets, art galleries, great eateries, Music Festivals, rainforests, Movie World, Sea World, Water World, lots of villages to visit, the famous Gold Coast to see.
There is always something to see or do. It is a wonderful area of Australia to live.
Roger and I have lived here for about 11 years.
Roger is a retired teacher/ banker/computer programmer, who designed our lovely home.
I am a teacher, now teaching 2 days a week at one of our local primary schools.
We have 6 grandchildren, with one more on the way. We like to visit them as often as we can, but as the live about 700 kms away, we don't get to see them as often as we would like to.
Roger and I recently lost our beautiful 9 year old rottweiller, and decided this would be a good time to travel - before we get another pet.
We love reading, travel, keeping healthy through walking and swimming, watching movies (Roger has a fabulous DVD collection) and discovering new eateries.
